The Dole Archive is one of the nation’s largest collections of papers and artifacts for a nonpresidential politician. It contains the complete records of Sen. Dole’s political and post-political career and, as such, documents the development of what have become some of the defining national and international issues of the latter half of the 20th century. The archive also holds a photo collection consisting of 25,000 images, an audio/visual collection, an extensive collection of oral histories, as well as a large collection of art, artifacts and textiles.
